Episode Filler Content Quality: 6/10.

CR Stream Quality: 7/10

My only problems are,
1. Quality of the 720p (Looks like the 480p stream with a upscale filter. Various artifacting/color lines)
2. "Choppiness" of the animation (due to flash/encode? I'm on a very high end PC, quad core Phenom 3.0GHz, dual 8800 GTS 512 g92, 8GB ram)
3. Lack of Karaoke OP/ED subs.

Besides that the stream worked perfectly. Hopefully that other stuff can be fixed. Peace.

It was very choppy (i have a dual core, 8800gts and 4gig ram). Sometimes the orange would jump all of the place for a split second or so.

The lack of karaoke was also a bit dissapointing. I hope those things can be fixed, other then that it worked perfectly.

When I say "very", it wasn't that bad, but I was quite annoyed by it.

Also the various ghosting is sort of annoying. Example:

Also it looks like the 720p stream, while the quality seems better than the 480p, is simply an upscale as pixels are quite apparent at many points.

The episode streams fine for me up until 7 minutes into it @ 420P. At that point it buffers at a really slow rate, which is really annoying. Is this to be expected from further episodes or just a current bug?

I must admit, I was expecting better quality than this for a paid service. Hopefully these will get fixed though, the ghosting/color bleeding, choppiness and the quality of the 720p. And I haven't even been able to watch the whole episode yet because it refuses to continue streaming at some points.

I really want to sign up so I can watch my naruto... But with all the reconstructive criticism now I'm kinda iffy about it I don't want to pay $7 for it if it's going to be choppy and pixelated. Has anyone actually had a good experience witht this yet¿

I have to pretty much agree with all this. I too am on a PC that is not a factor. The streaming was fine its just the quality of it was lacking. I am so hoping someone from crunchyroll talks to DB about having them sub because they do a great job. Gonna really miss them subbing it.

Awesome Sasuke action was AWESOME!!!! ([email protected] :lol:)


Hopefully, they will continue to improve/tweak the player, as they have been doing for the past two weeks up to this point.

Try not to forget, people, we've all locked in at an amount of about half-off regular price, for our memberships, as part of the "early" subscriber bonus!!!
Apparently, many of you have never played many major online video games AT LAUNCH. Even beta testers don't get a discount on there games, I think our being able to lock in at half-price is more than enough compensation for having to bear witness to the perfecting (fast or slowly) of the new streaming HD and timing.
But, that's just me being rational....
